My first dress completed!
I had been given McCalls 2401 and had been inspired by Tilly of Tilly and the Buttons
I was not as brave as her and did not attempt a version with sleeves…yet. I also had some ikea fabric in my stash and came across a wonderful use of the very fabric I had in the Architect’s Dress by alasmydear
Inspiration in place, I dove in and after some small alterations, this was the result. OK, not a perfect fit but totally chuffed that I made something on my own, and something I think I will certainly get wear out of.
Ikea cotton fabric
